‘Moroccan-inspired’ home with wild fireplace wants $2.5M

The Los Feliz estate belongs to French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet

This “Moroccan-inspired” Los Feliz residence certainly isn’t short on personality. Called Casa Pavoreal (Peacock House) in its listing description, the colorful style easily seen from the street carries into the main house, with dramatic chandeliers, painted ceilings, showy sconces, and bright tile walls and countertops.

The outgoing three-bedroom home belongs to French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who purchased it in 1998 for $570,000, as property records reveal. As such, it’s not surprising that the living room is centered around a grand piano and an ornate music stand—though both are a bit upstaged by the majestic tile fireplace.

Situated on a 7,787-square-foot lot, the home is fronted by a low wall, with steps leading to an outdoor courtyard complete with tiled floors, a fire pit, and fountain. The back of the house opens to a very glamorous-looking pool and spa bordered by tall walls of greenery. There’s also an outdoor sitting area and a small guest house accessed from the pool deck.

Interior features include a striking master stairway, a pair of en-suite bedrooms, and an updated kitchen with a large wine refrigerator and steam oven. As an added bonus, the two bedrooms share a rooftop terrace.

Asking price is $2.499 million.
